. yesterday we heard kathleen sebelius or just a short time ago today, she was in atlanta. did she give hints as to what they might be looking at or are they saying we're going to do this but don't know how yet? >> at this point they're not tipping their hand what they're going to be doing. sebelius only said to reporters in atlanta they didn't have a plan on the table at this point. they could have a plan in their drawer in their desk somewhere or floating around inside other offices inside hhs. they're not willing to talk about that at this point. there are various reports out there perhaps they're looking at expanding subsidies for people to obtain insurance on these exchanges. why would that happen? because if people are seeing their pols are being canceled and the only option that's available costs more money, then perhaps those expanded subsidies might be helpful. i have tried to ask a variety of officials over here at the white house as to whether or not that is the case. nobody is willing to confirm that, and of course, that may require some kind of legislation to expand those subsidi

for numbers. secretary kathleen sebelius has insisted she's not going to report any numbers until next week. senators orrin hatch and chuck grassley who questioned her about this on the finance committee, out with numbers this morning. they say they have contacted the four insurers on the washington, d.c., exchange, and as far as insurers are concerned, only five people at this point are enrolled. two of them at care first blue cross blue shield, three at kaiser-permanente, none at united health and aetna. however, you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt. because the d.c. exchanges has officially reported that as of october 21st, they had 164 people who had enrolled, those enrollments paid and there were 321 total who had selected plans. so this could be an issue with a lot of those insurance documents, sue, not making their way to the insurers but people having completed the process, one of the things that the secretary has said one of the reasons why she hasn't given interim numbers. >> absolutely, bertha. thank you very much. >>> let's go to dominic chu, he has a quick market
